Dave Owens passed away at home in Sonoma on February 20, 2023. Dave was born and raised on Long Island and moved with his wife Peggy to Sonoma in 2013.
Dave had served the Sonoma community in many ways, including as President of the St. Francis Solano St. Vincent de Paul food pantry and as President of the Chantarelle HOA. Before retirement, Dave was a guidance counselor in NY for 39 years.
At heart, he was a sentimental Irishman who loved people, pets, gardens and storytelling. He was also a great sports fan, and always wore his signature SF Giants hat wherever he went.
Dave is survived by his wife Peggy, daughter Theresa Maritato (Bryan), sons Patrick Owens (Deanna) and James Owens (Catherine) and his grandson Austin Owens.
There will be a memorial Mass at St. Francis Solano Church on Tuesday, March 21, at 11 a.m. Donations to the pantry would be welcome.
